The Best Pens!



These are my very favorite pens! I have some at work and some at home, and I'm very protective of someone walking off with them. They're Pentel RSVP Razzle Dazzle pens, and while I was shopping at Target yesterday, I found them on clearance for $.98 for a pack of 5. I bought the only 2 packs they had, and I was really jazzed about it, until I realized that they were probably on clearance because they're being phased out! Bummer! Settings for these shots were RAW, AV mode, 800 ISO, 50 mm lens. The first was f/8.0, ss 1/100, the second was f/4.5, ss 1/15 (no wonder it's soft!). HHCC please! Thanks!

Cool pic. I like the colors and the compositions. I think it would look great with a little more brightness and contrast to pop the colors against the white. too bad about the pends - hopefully they don't get phased out - but it might also mean they ar eadding colors or something else maybe? :)

Sweet picture. I have a pen fetish and these are too cool. I may have to see if my Target has these. Love all the colors in this shot. Thanks for the comment on my blog...and I used columnar accounting type paper underneath. I love the stuff.

Love these pens. Very fun! I really like the second one--the composition is really interesting. I'm with hand puppet--I think they need a little boost. You might be able to get that white a little whiter with a levels adj. and bump the saturation a little too and I bet it will really pop!

**Too funny about what you said in my blog. These little avatar pics are so funny. I really didn't want mine there, but I so much prefer to have a face with a name, so I bit the bullet and did it anyway. :) Glad to know I have a sis out there somewhere!

Ok, so what makes these the best pens...I must know!

I like in the first one, they are all lines up in a row and then, in the second, hap hazard and carefree. Could be symbolic of life.

I think even more contrast/pop could make a good photo, great!

cool photos and I can totally relate to "Pen Love" I love G2 by Bic...the best pens ever.

I will agree that a color pop would make this way cool!
